Course Information

Meetings: Monday, 1:30-4:20, A202 Wilcox. The first meeting, originally scheduled for Monday, September 20, has been rescheduled to Friday, September 17 at 1:30.


There are two requirements: participation and a term paper. 

Participation means doing the reading, coming to class prepared, and being an active contributor to the discussion.  This will account for half of the grade.

The paper should be approximately 12 pages in length (double-spaced, 11-point, with reasonable margins).   The paper may be on any topic acceptable to the instructor, and it may take the form of a traditional term paper or of a legal document such as a brief or a mock decision of the court.   The paper will be done on the following timetable:

  • Nov. 8: Turn in a one-page description of your proposed topic.

  • Nov. 22: Turn in an outline of your paper.

  • Dec. 13: Turn in a first draft of your paper.

  • Jan. 11: Turn in the final version of your paper.

The paper will account for half of the grade.
